PRESS RELEASE - Month-Long Wyndram Street Closure Begins Monday

A section of Wyndham Street between Carden and Fountain Streets will be closed off for a month starting Monday, and for once, the construction work involved has nothing to do with the railway bridge that's so often the subject of scorn involving tight-fitting transport trucks.

Here's the press release from the City of Guelph:
Wyndham Street closed between Carden and Fountain July 27 to August 14
